About Life Worth Living Church
A Church Where God Is Love
Established in 2015, the goal of Life Worth Living Church is to help each member develop a life that pleases the God who created them, to fulfill the potential inside themselves, and to enrich the world around them. In order to have a life worth living, we believe that we must first understand the Word of God and God's covenant principles. One must become a disciple through Biblical truths who is spirit-filled, faith-based and trained in the Word of God. If you are not a disciple, you are at a disadvantage. Therefore, in this season, we are focusing on what it means to become a disciple, what it means to be in a covenant with Christ, and what it means to be in covenant with a church family. Everything we build on has to be the Word, which gives value to what we say and do.
Life Worth Living Church has been under the leadership of Pastor John "J" Finney since the year 2015.
The purpose of Life Worth Living Church is to make disciples of men, women, and youth for the glory of God. Everything we build on has to be the Word, which gives value to what we say and do.
The Word says:
Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Matthew 28:18-20 NLT
